Disney’s stop-motion animated modern classic “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion the Hollywood Bowl is hosting two special concerts featuring composer/star Danny Elfman, plus cast members Catherine O’Hara, Ken Page, and more.
On Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 at 8:00 PM, fans can enjoy a live-to-picture screening and concert presentation of the beloved Halloween/Christmas movie. Songwriter Danny Elfman will reprise his role as the singing voice of Jack Skellington, with Catherine O’Hara and Ken Page also returning as Sally and Oogie Boogie, respectively. The orchestra is led by John Mauceri, founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Using living scenery projected onto the facade of the Hollywood Bowl, the event is described as a “fully immersive digital visual.”
Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas – in concert live to film Oct 26th & 27th at the @HollywoodBowl.

This marks the third “Nightmare Before Christmas” concert at the Hollywood Bowl. The fan-favorite event first took place over Halloween weekend in 2015 and returned in 2016.

During the special event, audience members are invited to participate in a Tim Burton-inspired costume contest. Guests can also take part in photo opportunities and trick-or-treating stations as part of a Halloween Town experience.
